Fine American manufacturer of mountain bicycles Intense has partnered with makers of heretofore elusive suspension maestros DVO to produce the Limited Edition Tracer 275C DVO. And here it is:
It’s essentially a Tracer 275C with DVO suspension (a Diamond fork and Jade rear shock), some different kit and a fancy graphics package. But it still makes us go ‘ooooh’. According to the press release the addition of DVO suspension gives a completely different feel to the normally specced air shock; it’s more supple, with better traction and better big hit performance. Coil shock always have a suppleness to them that air shocks have struggled to match, although we’ve yet to see any DVO kit apart from brief glimpses in trailers at events.
Apart from the chi-chi shock and fork and the snazzy graphics, the 275C DVO has been kitted out with Renthal cockpit, Maxxis tyres, a SRAM XO/X1 drivetrain and XT brakes. They’re building just 250 of them, so if you fancy getting hold of something Intense, green and Tracerish, you’d better hurry.
And here’s a little video (I quite like the music – rather Foals-y):
